Aimee Y. Yu, MD, Honored Posthumously with All Star Healthcare Solutions’ All Star Cares Award
All Star Healthcare Solutions has honored Aimee Y. Yu, MD, posthumously with its 2021 All Star Cares Award. Dr. Yu was a critical care provider who began accepting locum tenens assignments with the staffing firm in 2019.
Each year, All Star recognizes an extraordinary clinician in conjunction with National Locum Tenens Week. This event, led by the National Association of Locum Tenens Organizations (NALTO®) to pay tribute to locum tenens providers nationwide, takes place annually the second week of August.
“The All Star Cares Award is presented to a clinician who leads with the heart and significantly impacts the lives of others at work or in the community,” says Keith Shattuck, the company’s CEO. “It is a privilege to honor Dr. Yu in this way. We cannot think of a provider more deserving of this distinction.”
He continues, “Prior to and during the pandemic, Dr. Yu accepted every opportunity to bring her experience, skills, and passion for medicine to facilities in need of support. An amazing person and exceptional doctor, she made a tremendous impact on the lives of colleagues, patients, our All Star family, and undoubtedly, everyone who knew her.”
The recipient of the prestigious All Star Cares Award is determined by Executive Committee based on nominations submitted by the company’s people, clinicians, and/or clients.
All Star presented Dr. Yu’s award to her husband, Allan Ferber, virtually via Zoom.
Dr. Yu loved being a physician. She was dedicated to her patients and providing them with quality, compassionate care.
“We are humbled by her selfless service, positivity, modesty, and kindness, and grateful for the opportunity to acknowledge her,” says Shattuck. “On behalf of everyone at All Star, we offer our heartfelt sympathy to Dr. Yu’s family and friends.”
